CLOSE-UP MAGICIAN

"Mathew is an amazing magician.

He should be on prime time television.Not only exceptionally talented but a genuinely great person as well."

HI, I'M MATHEW

WELCOME TO MY SITE

I got started in magic nearly 20 years ago when a friend showed me a card trick, and since then I’ve turned my passion into my full time career.

I live in Nottingham UK, which being so central allows me to travel nationwide (and even internationally) and entertain guests at events from London to Lincolnshire and everywhere in-between.

 

If you’re looking for a professional entertainer offering a personal touch, who goes the extra mile, look no further!

ABOUT ME

"Mathew has a great personality. He was booked for our VIP Client entertainment including our staff very accommodating with our schedule and all our guests and staff enjoyed his performance. Would not hesitate to book him again!"

Above all else I aim to amaze people with my unique style of close up magic but over the years my experience in the industry has given me an expert perspective in knowing how to engage with people of all ages and backgrounds. I’ve worked with international clients, young children, the elderly, corporate clients such as Apple and Coco-Cola and have performed at venues ranging from back gardens to The Houses of Parliament and Wembley Stadium. I’ve been hired by celebrities like Katie Price and Team GB for weddings and private parties large and small. 

 

I have a laid back friendly approach backed up by skill and prowess that has been honed over nearly two decades. I call ahead of the event, arrive early, dress well and liaise with staff to maximise success and fit in to any special occasion. I have a disarming charisma, which I use to engage with people, and then use my specialist art of modern close up magic to build them up to an amazing moment that they often remember for long after the event. 

 

I’ve performed on boats, used magic to train lawyers in their offices overlooking Tower Bridge, and worked as a team of the top ten magicians at venues like Blenheim Palace. Please take a look at some of the hundreds of glowing testimonials from a range of previous clients including the ones mentioned above.

 

MY SERVICES

“Mathew was fantastic from start to finish. His magic was mesmerising and left the guests speechless. Not only did he perform magic for the adult guests he also tailored his performance for our younger guests who proceeded to follow him round all evening. He blended In perfectly and we couldn’t have asked for a better magician." 

WEDDINGS

The amazing value for money you get by hiring me to entertain at your wedding is that it provides a focal point for those lulls that can be inevitable in such a long (but amazing) day. If you need to go to have photos taken, how will your guests be entertained during that time? What about when the room needs redressing by staff to prepare for that all important evening reception?

 

If your guests are from two different sides of the family and are scattered around the venue in their own groups, my interactive close up magic is such a great way to give them a talking point and bring them together. I can help things to run smoothly and give a nice flow to the day by providing unusual and memorable entertainment that engages your guests on a personal level and (based on feedback) often becomes one of the unexpected hits of the day.

The most popular times to book are during drinks after the ceremony, whilst photos are being taken… at the tables during dinner… whilst the room is being turned around prior to the evening reception… or during the evening party before the band. Most people use the 2 hour booking to cover just one of those phases but some people like to cover two parts if they have a particularly large number of guests.

Have you been tasked to arrange an important event for all of your fellow coworkers!?

 

Well I have a great understanding of your situation. It can be stressful and high pressure to be in charge of organising such an occasion, so you need an entertainer who is very easy to deal with, professional, and can help things run smoothly at that all important company celebration. It’s you who will get thanked and asked just where on earth you found this magician who amazed everyone.

I arrive early, I don’t need any special performance space or equipment setup, so you can get on with everything you need to do whilst I am busy helping everyone to have a great time. I have 15+ years of experience performing at these kind of events!

PRIVATE PARTIES

"Mathews performance was excellent (my nephew still can't work out how he got the X on his hand). All my guests really enjoyed his performance and were talking about it long into the evening. He made what would have been an enjoyable evening anyway into something really special, it was more than I could have expected."

Whether it’s your Nan’s 80th birthday, a hen do, or a garden party to celebrate your engagement, I’ve done it all! Private parties can be very diverse, so you need someone who can deal with any situation and entertain the whole family.

We all have different music taste but magic seems to be cross generational, and ideal for those memorable private parties and get togethers marking that all important milestone. If you are having a formal dinner I can entertain at the dinner tables, otherwise I usually perform ‘mix and mingle’ style by politely approaching groups of guests and showing them amazing magic tricks that build to a great moment.
